Mischief Making at Bexley Libraries

Bexley Libraries are calling for children to sign up to read six books this summer as part of Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018. 
 
The Summer Reading Challenge asks 4 -11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer. The theme for the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved children's title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary.
 
Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find a hidden treasure chest full of pranks and become ultimate mischief makers! As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their map, young readers will help Dennis, Gnasher and friends solve clues and discover the treasure, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.
 
To take part in Mischief Makers, all children need to do is sign up at a Bexley library, where they will be given a colourful collector’s map of Beanotown to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey. Mischief Makers launches in libraries across Bexley on 14 July and will run until 8 September.
 
There’s a whole programme of events and activities planned at Bexley Libraries for families over the summer to celebrate the Challenge, including story and craft activities, Beanoland workshops and ‘Dennis and the Chamber of Mischief’ shows with John Kirk.

Cabinet Member for Places, Cllr Peter Craske said; “The Summer Reading challenge is one of the highlights of our libraries calendar. Hundreds of young people sign up to the fun every year and local volunteers help make the whole scheme a success. I’d urge anyone with children to pop along and get involved.”
